RARINDRA PRAKARSA

Passionate about naturalism, Rarindra Prakarsa strives to create photos as faithful as possible to the reality he perceives, so that the spectator can feel the same fascination as he does when faced with the grandeur of the Indonesian landscape. He likes to cite the work of Walter Spies as a source of inspiration, a German painter who lived on the island of Bali in the 1930s and whose use of light, choice of colours, and representation of rural areas greatly influenced the photographer. Whether it be a tree, a river, or a waterfall, Rarindra Prakarsa uses the elements offered to him by nature to give a scale of interpretation to the spectator. The image Taking Shower with Buffalo was taken in the countryside on the main island of Java. The characters photographed are children, who play naturally with a buffalo and splash each other in the middle of a river.
